Milspouse Friday Fill In #37...and ten things I love!

It's been a couple weeks now since I've done this (sorry!) but thankfully I'm around this week to join in on the fun. As always, thank you to Wife of a Sailor for taking the time to post these every week.

1. With PCS moves happening every few years, do you take the time to paint and decorate your home? submitted by Life as Mrs. JPT
Honestly, I haven't been a military wife long enough to experience a PCS move! I still think I'd take the time to at least decorate. My mom always inspires me to make things homey and comfy and I don't think I could come "home" to somewhere that didn't feel like home.

2. If you could live in any home on a television series, what would it be? submitted by Standing By Him
That 70s show! I love all the retro awesomeness of that house.
3. What inspired you to start your blog? submitted by Pink Combat Boots
I had spent time blogging for the Jane Wayne Gear blogger brigade and just forgot how much I liked it. It's my own little place to rant and rave! None of my friends care about alpacas or green cleaning products or other random things like that so it's nice to have somewhere to talk about it.
4. What is the weirdest thing you’ve ever seen on base? submitted by Adventures in Life
I don't think I've seen anything to be called "weird" on base. I've seen some deer (I'm from Maine, that's way normal) and a loggerhead turtle nest on the beach (normal for North Carolina).

5. Which historical figure (politician, writer, artist, scientist, actor, etc…) would you like to have dinner with? submitted by Army of Two
Wow, that's a tough one! I think it'd be a toss up between Henry David Thoreau and F. Scott Fitzgerald. With Thoreau I could have a deep philosophical conversation about life and happiness where Fitzgerald could talk to me all about the Jazz Age and his love life with Zelda Sayre. Both enjoyable topics!

I've also been tagged to participate in "10 things I love". It'll be hard to narrow it down to ten, but here goes!

10 Things I Love
The rules are as follows:
1 - State who tagged you; withlovelydia
2 - State ten things you love!

1.) Mr. Marine
2.) Sookie the amazing weenie dog
3.) Peppermint tea
4.) Fresh baked bread
5.) Digging in the dirt
6.) Nature and all the lovely things that live in it
7.) Good books!!!!!
8.) My mom and dad (and the rest of my family too, I suppose)
9.) Learning new skills
10.) My dad's homemade hard cider

I could go on and on...there are so many things I love!

3 - Tag ten other people and notify them through a comment
(I'm going to break the rules and do 3, because I don't have that many blogger buddies!)

1.) Cait at Libby Loves to Write
2.) Cheyenne at Always & Forever Maupin
3.) Mrs. M at Diapers, Dogs & Deployments

Thanks to everyone for reading! It seems like this is a post where you learn a lot about me...hopefully you liked what you read. ;)

Until next time,

xoxo Stacie

  1. This is a fun meme, perhaps I will join in one day. The weirdest thing I have ever seen on a base is a cattle drive with a police escort.
